Some nights it’s just not there, this was one of those nights. Randy Wells looked pretty good in the first three innings, problem is he didn’t make it out of the fourth. Someone apparently told Randy that the distance between the rubber and home plate was now 50′ because that’s about as far as half the pitches he threw in the 4th went. Wells was tagged with the loss only going 3 and 2/3rds of an inning and surrendering four runs. The Cubs weren’t much better at the plate as they made Joe Blanton look like someone much better than Joe Blanton. Every Cubs starter had a hit except for Castillo and Stewart, however they couldn’t string anything together and ended up on the short end of a 5-2 decision. Full highlights, and box score after the jump.

On an evening that seemed like the “same old night” at Wrigley, the Cubs had a breakthrough. After getting dominated for 8 straight innings by Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia, the Cubs took three weeks worth of frustration out on Cardinals closer Jason Motte. A combination of outstanding at bats, and a clutch base hit led to the Cubs first walk off win of the season. Full recap and highlights after the jump.
I’m sure that’s a huge relief for Paul Maholm, probably for the Cubs too. After two rough, well, bad outings the newly acquired Paul Maholm showed his employer and fans that he isn’t a complete disaster by going a strong six innings to tally his first win of the year and put a halt to the Cubs six game losing streak. The Cubs got to Reds starter Mike Leake early as they put up five runs in the first two innings, and that was all that Maholm and the Cubs needed for the victory.

The Cubs losing streak now stands at four as Garza and the Cubs could not stop their losing ways on Wednesday as the Marlins beat the Cubs 9-1. Garza had been good in his first two outings, but tonight was not his night. The Marlins were powered by two early two-run homeruns which proved to be more than enough. The Cubs bats were once again nowhere to be found as Mark Buerhle allowed six hits and one run is 8 innings of work.
It looked like a pitchers duel right from the start as Chris Volstad and Lance Lynn were dealing right from the word go. Unfortunately for the Cubs, the defense was not on the same level as the pitching. A big fourth inning for the Cardinals, that was started by a Castro error (his first of two on the day) was the difference as they plated four runs, three earned to take a 4-0 lead. The Cubs battled well enough down the stretch but could not get a clutch hit to get back in the game. Chris Volstad pitched well enough but took the loss to fall to 0-1, and Lance Lynn turned in his second straight solid outing for his second win on the young season. Full recap after the jump.
